President of Kazakhstan

Asked for further information on the Prime Minister’s meeting with President Nazarbayev, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the UK’s was the third largest investor in Kazakhstan – almost £3 billion since its independence. They were a key strategic player in terms of energy supply, and in 2005, we signed a bilateral agreement on energy, and we hoped to develop even further co-operation in this field in the future. In Iraq, President Nazarbayev had supported their allied efforts, and had contributed to the multinational force.

Asked by PA if the Prime Minister had seen the "Borat" film, the PMOS said that the journalist at least got marks for not having asked the question first! However, just as the PMOS did not give book reviews on behalf of the Prime Minister, nor did he do film reviews either.

Asked again if the Prime Minister had seen the film, the PMOS repeated his previous answer.
